Haute Caffeine

Arriving from Seattle, we were very concerned about finding good coffee. We didn't invest in a high-end espresso machine for over-roasted Starbucks beans. Never fear - Dark City Coffee Company is here - and the best news of all is that they deliver fresh-roasted beans within 24 hours after placing an order by phone! What a way to start the day.

Hey yyzgirl. Sounds great! So glad that the move from Seattle to Toronto has not displaced you on the coffee scene. Fresh roast is so important. I am roasing with a small drum roaster at home. Hottop bean roaster. Really like it. I go with drip mainly but just got into espresso and am having a great time with it. I have some carmel syrup I am lacing over the top! The good news on the Seattle end is that Starbucks seems to be focusing on a variety of roasts that have really expanded the range of good coffee selections. I am currently into Verona. It's BOLD, but very smooth. Like it a lot when I am on the run. They also have an organic that I like called Serena. As stated on the web, "This blend of organic coffees from Latin America and East Africa offers striking citrus flavor and floral aroma." Mild, subtle is how I would describe it, very interesting. Keep us posted on all things coffee in Toronto. Enjoying your other posts as well. Thanks!
